decimation: Rule by permanant bureaucracy is actually pretty stable historically
decimation: look at the Eastern Roman empire, and China
mircea_popescu: so then yes it can entirely ignore it.
mircea_popescu: it just tells it what to print.
decimation: The trick that the us government must navigate is to make the people still think they matter while making all the real decisions for them
decimation: that's the job of the media largely
mircea_popescu: it's only stable for as long as there's no new technology.
mircea_popescu: it is very unstable once the currency is attacked.
mircea_popescu: louis had the rule by bureaucracy down pat.
davout: mircea_popescu: nice article, preaching to the converted :-)
mircea_popescu: this is why attacking the currency is so paramountly important.
mircea_popescu: davout i like preaching to the converted, they have the best cleavage.
davout: mircea_popescu: i'll need to ask pankkake to explain this one to me
mircea_popescu: lol p has good cleavage ?!
davout: i don't know what you mean by cleavage
pankkake: what
davout: pankkake: your english is better than mine
pankkake: décolleté
decimation: I'm certainly a fan of peaceful transitions
mircea_popescu: http://mybroadband.co.za/photos/data/500/medium/633894003071319270-cleavage.jpg

herbijudlestoids: ok back from my calls
davout: haha i still don't get it ><
mircea_popescu: decimation peaceful transition is experimentally a function of ethnic and cultural homogenity and size.
pankkake: me neither
mircea_popescu: the us is a large, federal (as opposed to national) construct.
mircea_popescu: it can't not be bloody.
mircea_popescu: davout me either, but cleavage.
davout: mircea_popescu: this i get
mircea_popescu: me too.
mircea_popescu: daily basis!
davout: :-)
decimation: yeah, there are many possibilities but the most likely seems to be falling back to individual soviergnty of the states
mircea_popescu: corsage cleavage actually.
mircea_popescu: decimation how do you reason ?
decimation: especially the ones that haven't been demographically ruined
decimation: some states are fairly homogeneous, and the idea of a 'state' is a sufficient Schelling point around which militia can rally
mircea_popescu: except the only point of history n the us is the defeating of such a construct.
mircea_popescu: or review the legal history of the concept of nullification
mircea_popescu: no argument that it will probably get bloody around this argument rather than any other,
mircea_popescu: so a schelling point it is.
mircea_popescu: just, not for peaceful transition.
decimation: yeah I think you are likely correct
decimation: the trouble is that the collapse of the US will engulf the entire world in instability
mircea_popescu: "the entire world" as seen from the us.
mircea_popescu: may spill into canada, certainly will destroy mexico.
KRS-One: decimation is correct, unfortunately
KRS-One: not sure about the stability part, but it will be felt.

mircea_popescu: you have to maintain them
decimation: absolutely
decimation: and the delivery mechanisms
mircea_popescu: its a major hassle.
mircea_popescu: one of the reason this sovereign beats that sovereign is that it has a better definition of sovereignity.

mircea_popescu: wait till you read the blogfeeds.
decimation: well, the ultimate argument against nukes today is that wealth is not held physically anymore
decimation: the value of a city is the sum of all the services its brains can provide

decimation: Yeah nukes are actually surprisingly survivable: http://www.fas.org/programs/ssp/nukes/nuclear_weapon_effects/nuclearwpneffctcalc.html
mircea_popescu: jurov the guarantee isn't that no city will be hit. in fact as i say above, at least one already has.

kakobrekla: i have no idea what you said

herbijudlestoids: i am not capitalised correctly to make bids

BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Or you could simply try to not become less capitalized?
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: yer, in which case the spread stays at 300 and nobody gives a fuck about the market
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: It isn't necessarily unhealty. It simply means sellers and buyers have a disagreement.
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: ok well let us see how much activity occurs with a spread of 300, my guess is none.
herbijudlestoids: probly between me and you there has been more activity in ATCBTC in the last hour than the last 5 days
mike_c: not even close.

herbijudlestoids: not really sure how this is any different from a fiat market
herbijudlestoids: aside from lack of leverage
herbijudlestoids: its just a two way auction.
BingoBoingo: BTC on the other hand is too expensive to throw away on making a market look right.
BingoBoingo: It is more important the market actually BE right, than to look "right"
BingoBoingo: herbijudlestoids: Consider the spreads on S.BBET and S.NSA
herbijudlestoids: right, so the correct state of ATCBTC is no trades? gg
mircea_popescu: what is the atc voluem to date actually ?

herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: no problem specifically, but its unsustainable, id prefer to continue making a market around the diff implied price than not
mircea_popescu: how is it unsustainable, selling btc for atc at above diff implied price ?
mircea_popescu: or you mean, the atc was above ?
herbijudlestoids: i mean, now that i have no BTC in the account, i cant make the market...thats all
mike_c: so you made some profitable trades and now you're broke.
mircea_popescu: so then you got creamed.

mircea_popescu: it is either one or the other you know.
herbijudlestoids: not really sure how im failing to explain this
mircea_popescu: either what you do is profitable and sustainable, or else it isn't. we have a word for that latter.
herbijudlestoids: so if i make a profit, but i cant make another profit, it counts as getting creamed?
herbijudlestoids: just to clarify on your definitions?

jayk: it was in black and white
mircea_popescu: yes well you gotta cut me some slack here, i deal with nude bands of amazons on a biweekly basis
jayk: it was kind of amusing
mike_c: herbijudlestoids: it is not complicated. you did not "make a profit". you entered a position.
mircea_popescu: s/cut/cunt/
jayk: hah
BingoBoingo: I made two profits.
mircea_popescu: ahahaha
BingoBoingo: And last trade on ATC was 700 Satoshis
jayk: http://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_me15otBzHe1ru15g3o1_500.jpg
mircea_popescu: incidentally, why are you two so convinced a high last trade is useful or important ?
jayk: that pic
mike_c: omg. their order matching is horrible
mircea_popescu: not saying it isn't necessarily, but curious as to the rationale.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I'm no
kakobrekla: wait, reading the forum is not useful!? fuck, the time wasted.
BingoBoingo: *not
BingoBoingo: But I think Dogers like high last trades
mircea_popescu: jayk ah, nope. they claimed it was some slovenian band but it turned out to be a scam

mircea_popescu: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mam7zdFeJR1ru15g3o1_500.jpg there.
BingoBoingo: Hopefully some Dogers will see 700 and think my selling at 625 is cheap
BingoBoingo: At least I hope idiocy works that way
herbijudlestoids: BingoBoingo: im starting to feel like i perceive value at 110 :)

herbijudlestoids: i am, sure, 0.00000001 ATC
mircea_popescu: to reiterate my earlier q : why are you so convinced a high price is better than a low price ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I'm not at all convinced. I just want to trick herbijudlestoids into gifting me more coins.
mircea_popescu: well yes, it's what generally goes on in the markets.
BingoBoingo: Now I just have to see if my withdrawal of most of herbijudlestoids's BTC makes it from Openex to https://blockchain.info/address/1LvCuntsJyFFQsLuJhBXBPokbQa7SAyMr4

herbijudlestoids: yea im not really sure what the argument is other than BingoBoingo wanted to prove some point about the way BTC markets should be

mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids think in terms of autonomous entities. like say an insect, or whatever. its survival as a type and as a species depends on interracting with an unspeicifed envronment a certain way.

herbijudlestoids: lol ok?
herbijudlestoids: lucky my survival doesnt depend at all whatsoever on my attempts to generate interest on openex in ATCBTC :)
mike_c: <sigh> you want to learn your lessons when they only cost $9 or when they cost more?

mike_c: nevermind, nevermind. anyway, the spread has gotten lower.
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids no but see, the argument is that nature did well enough populating the earth without trying to populate the earth
mircea_popescu: but merely out of a bunch of things following my rule above.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile obama did very poorly trying to "restart the economy" from the top down
mircea_popescu: and generally, the ideology surrounding bitcoin is that these two are irreconciliable, and the 2nd is wrong.
herbijudlestoids: mike_c: yall seem convinced that you have taught me some kind of lesson...or that im learning it...or whatever...all i can see is approx what i said would happen if undercapitalised, happened. i dont really take any exception to it happening, but to the idea that there was some kind of inherent lesson, or some point, whatever... i dont see it
herbijudlestoids: this all started because mircea_popescu asked if i would be his "ATC daytrader on openex" because i mentioned having put on a small cascade of limit sells last night...and i said i didnt think there was anything to the market except the potential for MM
Apocalyptic: still talking about this heh ?
pankkake: Duffer1: I don't know if it will attract anyone. http://bitbet.us/bet/633/bfl-will-ship-before-activemining/ is almost dead

herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: your analogies arent even close to related. nature builds simple robust systems, obama trying to restart a complex system far from equilibrium...
Vexual: Prince defined it back in '91
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: in no sense am i trying to build a complex system, just provide the seedbed for liquidity in ATCBTC on openex, in the hopes of enticing others to do similar

herbijudlestoids: im not riled up lol, im trying to understand wtf
mircea_popescu: well ok, so how come my analogies are not related ?
jimjenkin: hi mircea
mircea_popescu: heya
jimjenkin: good post on mtgox
mircea_popescu: why ty.
jimjenkin: on your blog
Apocalyptic: damn i missed the new trilema
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids anyway, it's nothing as heavyhanded as "a lesson" blabla, it's just we apparently all seem to see sometyhing there.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i just explained it? nature does not build systems which drift from equilibrium. obama is literally riding a complex system in escape velocity. the implication is that what i tried to do is ...incorrect...because its obama-esque and not nature-esque...im saying thats so far from what i was trying to accomplish, that i dont understand the connection
mircea_popescu: so what were you trying to accomplish ? because it seems one of those polymorphous things which changes under examination.
herbijudlestoids: ....
mircea_popescu: were you trying to turn a profit, were you trying to improve the atc ecosystem, what was it ?
jimjenkin: obama cant build obamacare becuase its impossible to scale 1 system to 330million individuals duh.
jimjenkin: that type of health system works in tiny populations like norway
mircea_popescu: jimjenkin norway has the advantage it doesn't need to build self-sustaining system, because they're getting free money from the sea.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: what i said to you from the very beginning was that there is no profit to turn, except in the potential for MM, which i am underfunded for, but i would give a crack anyway
jimjenkin: thats true too mircea
mircea_popescu: so were you trying to turn a profit ?
herbijudlestoids: profit can come when there is an actual stack of bids and offers to sell into, in the meantime can make a small market around the diff implied price which encourages others to do same, generating the potential for daytrading, etc
mircea_popescu: that's a yes or a no?
jimjenkin: lol
jimjenkin: answers a simple question with gibberish
herbijudlestoids: ...
herbijudlestoids: am i really speaking gibberish here?
jimjenkin: the man asked you a question
mircea_popescu: amusingly, this is pretty much bitcoin-fiat dialogue, personified.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: the purpose of my activity, like i explained to you (now 3 times) was to have a go at something i was skeptical would work, specifically because you seemed to think there was some potential in trying the idea out
herbijudlestoids: i couldnt decipher what the potential was on questioning

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15800 @ 0.0008721 = 13.7792 BTC [+] {2}
herbijudlestoids: but willing to keep an open mind and have a go anyway
mircea_popescu: so what you're saying is basically that my question can not be answered, in that you can't in retrospect establish if you were or were not trying to turn a profit.
herbijudlestoids: i already said from the beginning that its highly unlikely for any business to succeed if undercapitalised and in this case i am undercapitalised for "daytrading ATC on openex"
mircea_popescu: <mike_c> <sigh> you want to learn your lessons when they only cost $9 or when they cost more? << the problem here is, of course, that people will waive their immunity to reality when reality is still powerless. this kind of puts a low bound on everyone's education, and this is why it's so much cheaper to educate poor kids.
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids what's that to do with anything ?
mircea_popescu: so you said hail mary before stepping on the battlefield. so ?
mircea_popescu: mike_c also why slaves are the most educable. they own nothing, are immune to nothing, have no choice but tu learn.
jimjenkin: mircea_popescu: can you talk about the latest developments regarding the tx mal. bullshit, does it matter?
mircea_popescu: jimjenkin depends what your criteria are, but i dunno why it would generally matter.
herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i was not specifically, with the amount of capital input, trying to turn a profit. no. i figured that was clear but apparently not. the goal, specifically, was to entice an "ecosystem" as you put it, into existence, from which a profit can actually be derived.
mircea_popescu: so you were not trying to turn a profit, but to build up the ecosystem.
mircea_popescu: how is this different from obama trying to "restart the economy" ?
herbijudlestoids: i dun really see how its related at all.
mircea_popescu: so you perceive no point of contact between the two whatsoever ?
jimjenkin: everyone in crypto is trying to build an ecosystem, but they never explain what that ecosystem actually is
jimjenkin: another catchphrase of the tech community
herbijudlestoids: for the retarded, pls explicitly state what is the point of contact between trying to establish liquidity for exchanging ATCBTC and obama trying to kickstart a disjoint complex system in failure mode
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 16046 @ 0.0008704 = 13.9664 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids the us economy is in state S, obama intends to move it to state S'.
mircea_popescu: atc is in state A, you intend to move it to state A'
mircea_popescu: it would seem you are substantially both the same thing doing the same thing : having identified a "better" state and labouring to enact this notion of yours into reality.
herbijudlestoids: soooo basically, everything fighting entropy in any form whatsoever is now analoguous to obama trying to kickstart the economy
mircea_popescu: not in any form whatsoever.
herbijudlestoids: my body is in state X and trying to move to state X'
herbijudlestoids: my body is obama
mircea_popescu: nope.
mircea_popescu: your body is not aiming for a state in that sense, but merely proceeding from X.
mircea_popescu: you see, if your liver relases glycogen, this is because of X, not because of X'.
mircea_popescu: this distinction, which may appear without a difference, is actually the whole story.
herbijudlestoids: usually when you type mircea_popescu i feel like there is a ray of insight and knowledge which i can catch and appreciate. not so much today.
jimjenkin: so are you trying to make a profit
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids i guess it must be cloudy :)

mircea_popescu: weird.
Vexual: shit
herbijudlestoids: mod6: withdrawals seem to require manual admin approval while theyre still in beta so keep that in mind
herbijudlestoids: i seen lots of people complaining in the chat cos they thought theyre automatic
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 1 @ 0.19376446 BTC [+]
herbijudlestoids: Bunnyh: that is kind of weird yeah.
herbijudlestoids: Bunnyh: got debug.log from your altcoind?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 139 @ 0.50462769 = 70.1432 BTC [-] {43}
ThickAsThieves: maybe we discover how to hack bitcoin to have smaller block rewards
Bunnyh: yes i think so, unless it has already rotated enough so that those blocks aren't visible
Bunnyh: can't access it until after a few hours though
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.545 BTC [+]
mod6: herbi: thanks for the heads up.
herbijudlestoids: Bunnyh: i just checked my debug.log which goes back to the 9th of this month...none of those hashes are in there
herbijudlestoids: looks like theyre older than what i got
Bunnyh: i mined them on the 2nd
Bunnyh: and with eloipool actually, so i guess debug.log wouldn't have anything interesting anyway
mircea_popescu: sounds like the code change might have been a little buggy ?
herbijudlestoids: wait, did you mine them solo or in pool?
mircea_popescu: perhaps it allows you to declare 50 btc new blocks if you wish, even if they shoulkd be 512 ?
Vexual: lol
herbijudlestoids: or personal pool?
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids makes no diff really, cause the block was the block
Bunnyh: herbijudlestoids: solo pool, i had too much hashpower to use altcoind directly
Vexual: did you get any 512 blocks like that?
Bunnyh: yes, hundreds
Bunnyh: just those three 50 ATC blocks randomly
Vexual: why you telling people thne?
herbijudlestoids: it would still be good to see a log of the altcoind encountering those blocks and see what its saying
ThickAsThieves: we didnt have the source code on the 2nd tho
ThickAsThieves: did we?
mircea_popescu: pankkake ^ you ever heard of shit like that ?
herbijudlestoids: ThickAsThieves: no
Bunnyh: Vexual: huh? i'm just interested in how/why that could happen
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.481 BTC [-]
Vexual: are you mining bc on the same rig?
MisterE: too much hashpower is a good problem to have
Bunnyh: Vexual: sure, i just thought i'd point those asics to a new coin for a night, it's not like that "too much hashpower" really makes much btc nowadays
herbijudlestoids: weird as well because those 50 blocks are surrounded by 512 blocks
ThickAsThieves: so it thought it was bitcoin not altcoin somehow
herbijudlestoids: not like its 50, 50, 50...its 512, 50, 512, 512, ... 50, 512...
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 2 @ 0.4800055 = 0.96 BTC [-] {2}
ThickAsThieves: so how do we do the reverse is the question
Bunnyh: "thought it was bitcoin" ? i have no idea what that could mean
ThickAsThieves: mine 512btc block
Bunnyh: they were just miners pointed to a pool that was pointed to altcoind
Vexual: someone would notic 512 bc blocks
ThickAsThieves: so
MisterE: 512 bc is a lot
ThickAsThieves: yep
ThickAsThieves: so is 5000btc
ThickAsThieves: or 1m
Vexual: so mr forbes would say the whole think is borked
MisterE: there's a thousand pundits waiting to say the whole thing is b0rked
ThickAsThieves: i knew ATC would be disruptive!
MisterE: Poor Robert Bork
MisterE: last niminee to try to be honest
MisterE: nominee*
ThickAsThieves: can nodes somehow affect this?
ThickAsThieves: when/where is the block reward determined?
Bunnyh: can't you generate less than the allowed block reward + fees in btc too? or would that be rejected by other nodes?
Vexual: what code are you running bunny?
Bunnyh: that was with the initial release of altcoind + latest eloipool
MisterE: I'll just follow the chat then jump on the sploit when you guys figure it out OK :p
herbijudlestoids: im looking at ../src/main.cpp:1076
herbijudlestoids: hang on ill pull it up
herbijudlestoids: https://github.com/therealaltcoin/altcoin/blob/master/src/main.cpp#L1076
herbijudlestoids: is that the line that determines the block reward?
Bunnyh: looks familiar, i've had to check the same function with other coins to understand some custom implementations
Evolyn: can someone tell me whats happening with havelock? the site is... not accessable @.~
herbijudlestoids: Bunnyh: so for some reason when that function was called, it COIN must have = 0.097...
agorecki: What's the reward for mining a block in terms of fees? It's .2 bitcoin, isn't it?
ThickAsThieves: https://github.com/therealaltcoin/altcoin/blob/master/src/main.cpp#L2109
ThickAsThieves: dunno if that is of interest
ThickAsThieves: just searching for 50s
ThickAsThieves: ...
ThickAsThieves: that's the only one
herbijudlestoids: ThickAsThieves: that looks like an error code tho
Vexual: get you 0.01 back tat
mircea_popescu: <Bunnyh> can't you generate less than the allowed block reward + fees in btc too? or would that be rejected by other nodes? << you can
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 22 @ 0.00531907 = 0.117 BTC [-] {2}
mircea_popescu: Evolyn nobody said anything so far.
mircea_popescu: you can prolly ask toffoo
mircea_popescu: oops i mean topace
Bunnyh: so the bug could very well be in eloipool or my eloipool config
ThickAsThieves: evolyn, its probly cloudflare
Bunnyh: it was just a continuous run and those 50 ATC blocks happened randomly, spaced with dozens of normal blocks
ThickAsThieves: loads fine for me
ThickAsThieves: give it 5min
Evolyn: sometimes the site loads, yes, but having trouble most of time, and cloudflare shows me offline version all time
ThickAsThieves: there's something buggy in the code i think
ThickAsThieves: where it retries a bunch
ThickAsThieves: and then triggers CF
ThickAsThieves: happens to me a lot when pushing shares to people
MisterE: it's probably being ddosed
Bunnyh: Luke-Jr: can you think of any reason why eloipool would suddenly generate a 50 coin block reward instead of the actual amount that should be generated?
Bunnyh: 50 is the initial btc reward and eloipool is designed for btc, so wouldn't be too surprising...
MisterE: yea 50 per block right?
ThickAsThieves: might wanna point out we arent talkin bout btc to luke
MisterE: and to me :p
cs1980: taking about altcoin?
ThickAsThieves: yes
Bunnyh: Luke-Jr: the correct reward would be 512 coins in this case, and eloipool mostly generated blocks with that amount
Luke-Jr: I can.
ThickAsThieves: care to share?
herbijudlestoids: i got a present for yall

MisterE: fucker!
MisterE: it's ok I'm numb to goatse
Bunnyh: i wouldn't even want to imagine what most irc channels look like with inline images ...
Luke-Jr: ThickAsThieves: I cared to share the Eloipool code in the first place, and it seems very few care to contribute back their changes, so.. not especially inclined to help with it tbh.
MisterE: its funny when I joined this channel and my gf sees me chat from her desk behind suddenly there are naked pics in chat and she comes over
KRS-One: lol MisterE
ThickAsThieves: Luke-Jr I never even heard of the thing
ThickAsThieves: just wondering
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: give us a clue and we might be keen to contribute a patch? ;)
Luke-Jr: subsidy = 5000000000 >> (height // 210000)
herbijudlestoids: is that in eloipool or in altcoind code? looks like the line below the line i pasted before
Luke-Jr: used to fabricate block templates before bitcoind has the next block
Luke-Jr: Eloipool
Luke-Jr: and yes, it looks similar because it does the same thing :P
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4950 @ 0.00087297 = 4.3212 BTC [+]
ThickAsThieves: so it was caused by eloipool not altcoind
Vexual: phew
Bunnyh: thanks, mystery solved
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: can we help with a patch? or its just a discrepancy for altcoins?
Bunnyh: that could be made configurable but then users would have to input the reward algorithm, which might be a bit convoluted with some coins
ThickAsThieves: herb i think it's an incompatibility
ThickAsThieves: how is eloipool supposed to know what to predict if it isnt predictable
Luke-Jr: herbijudlestoids: a patch would be handy
Luke-Jr: I'd think a simple config var with a lambda type would work
Luke-Jr: and complex altcoins could always define a full function in the config if they had to :p
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: i think im on your github, but not 100% sure. do you mind pulling it up? file/line number?
mircea_popescu: o that's it then
Bunnyh: herbijudlestoids: merklemaker.py line 160
Luke-Jr: Eloipool is Gitorious-only FWIW
Luke-Jr: and Bunnyh beat me to it
mircea_popescu: might be an idea to grep the code for any 5000000000
mircea_popescu: just to be on the safe side

mircea_popescu: Duffer1 interesting that the activeminer crowd woudl confuse bitfury chips for bfl chips
Duffer1: ken claimed bfl chips, those that knew better pointed it out right away that the pic is bitfury
Luke-Jr: herbijudlestoids: abc = lambda(a, b): a + b
Luke-Jr: herbijudlestoids: is the same as
Luke-Jr: herbijudlestoids: def abc(a, b): return a + b
Luke-Jr: except abc might be some.object.property instead of just a word
Duffer1: er probably bitfury
mircea_popescu: it's bitfury
mircea_popescu: not that many actual chips around. not yet anyway.
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: why lambda and not int? dont want to hassle you about stupid shit so feel free to ignore
Duffer1: it's interesting that people still believe anything ken says
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: let me finish this patch im attempting, if it sucks you can tell me what i did wrong :D

mircea_popescu: random internet person likes to get into arguments.
mircea_popescu: no downside, if he's proven wrong it's yet another random internet guy that's wrong.

herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: ok i emailed to the email address in your headers.
Luke-Jr: herbijudlestoids: int cannot do what lambda does :P
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: no i understand the basics of lambda, what i was asking is why use it in this case. i emailed you a thing, if its wrong pls feel free to reply and let me know
herbijudlestoids: but to me it seems like you can just pull those hardcoded ints out into the config file and let the use modify?
mircea_popescu: he doesn't know for a fact it will be always ints.
Luke-Jr: it could be an exponential degrade every block, for example
Luke-Jr: or the subsidy could grow
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: ill make you a deal, if you think my patch is correct for all cases where its int, then i will spend some time on the weekend and try to understand the lambda business
herbijudlestoids: i guess not really a "deal"
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: pledge ?
herbijudlestoids: yea i pledge on mircea_popescus pants
mircea_popescu: best put some on then
Luke-Jr: I wouldn't call it correct.
Luke-Jr: I would argue that CoinDecimals*CoinBlockReward is wrong
Luke-Jr: and that software should only ever work in the base unit
mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids remove this "decimals" nonsense from your head right now.
mircea_popescu: all bitcoin amounts are simply satoshi ints.
mircea_popescu: there's no fractions in crypto.
benkay: learning the lambda business is a good idea anyways herbijudlestoids
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: ok i just took that example from the altcoind code where they have a constant COIN = 100000000 and constant CENT = 10000000
mircea_popescu: wait thats not right
mircea_popescu: ;;calc 100000000 / 10000000
gribble: 10
mircea_popescu: that's a dent.
herbijudlestoids: static const int64 COIN = 100000000;
herbijudlestoids: static const int64 CENT = 1000000;
mircea_popescu: a ok.
herbijudlestoids: sorry i might have the wrong number of 0s, didnt use CENT in my code in the end
herbijudlestoids: Luke-Jr: so aside from that single multiplication issue, its ok?
Luke-Jr: looks ok
benkay: engineering can never be a copy/paste affair.

herbijudlestoids: benkay: i didnt say i copied it :)
herbijudlestoids: but i was trying to keep the python code to look similar to what i could see in the altcoind code
herbijudlestoids: and i figured there must be some convention for using this COIN
herbijudlestoids: ok, well Luke-Jr i pantspledge to you that i will look unto the lambda business and try to make a useful patch, so that you dont feel like all of us people in the community are cunts who never contrib (altho iv never used eloipool)

herbijudlestoids: well you can either buy ATC at market for 499s or put a bid in above 300s
herbijudlestoids: if you buy at market you get them now, if you put in a bid you gotta wait for someone to sell into the bid
herbijudlestoids: 290s is the highest bid now, sorry
herbijudlestoids: its a 2 way auction
herbijudlestoids: nothing stopping you from putting in bids below 290 i guess but then you gotta wait for someone to sell into the bids above oyu
Vexual: yeah m,y head say buy a fuckload at 125
herbijudlestoids: Vexual: there is a lot of bids above 125
Vexual: now, but earlier
herbijudlestoids: i think theyre all in there to stop me from pinging the last price to 110 hehe
Vexual: what good would that do?
herbijudlestoids: nothing, but it foils bingos attempts to have it worth more than doge
herbijudlestoids: hehe
Vexual: arent you hding atc?
herbijudlestoids: iam, but they dont hold any implicit value to me and it doesnt cost more than 0.00000001 ATC to ping a bid and set the last price ;)
herbijudlestoids: Vexual: if he wouldnt let me narrow the spread then i had to convince him to narrow it lol
Vexual: yeah this coin is unique

herbijudlestoids: i got the ASICs from a friend who didnt want them anymore, i was using them to mine a small amount of BTC a while ago but then the USB hub died and were just sitting around on my desk until ATC
herbijudlestoids: just a bit of fun, i originally wanted to get some and sell them on -otc to establish WoT, but nobody wanted to buy the small amount i initially had and someone (i think benkay) mentioned sturles to me anyway as someone who helps newbies to get rated on WoT...so not really necessary for much anymore

herbijudlestoids: yea some tiny amount, about 2000 satoshi worth

mircea_popescu: people love to think that trilema credits system is there cause im greedy, but it may just as well be the case
mircea_popescu: they're there to force people to also do some work in a day. at the very least to pay for the credits.

mircea_popescu: yes, if you account for it.
boolcrap: what kind of line do u have at your house in romania?
mircea_popescu: http://www.upc.ro/
mircea_popescu: that's the provider. 150mbps for like 30 bux or w/e
boolcrap: dam
boolcrap: sounds amazing
mircea_popescu: o wait, 9 bux
mircea_popescu: apparently they slashed it
pankkake: :o
boolcrap: what about
boolcrap: in the country side
boolcrap: what kind of internet do they have?
mircea_popescu: this is the country side.
boolcrap: heh
boolcrap: so
mircea_popescu: europe, and especially romania, has been continuously inhabited for 2k years.
mircea_popescu: there is no "countryside" in the arizona sense of the term
deadweasel: 9 bucks! i am in prison...
mircea_popescu: deadweasel told ya.
boolcrap: theres no places where there isnt fiber run?
mod6: i used to live in the az countryside :)

mircea_popescu: lmao
pankkake: I pay 50€ for 100M down / 5M up. and most people don't even have access to that
mircea_popescu: pankkake told ya.
boolcrap: im getting about 56k down
mircea_popescu: ><
boolcrap: :)
boolcrap: how do i jerk off, no one knows
boolcrap: nothing worse than waiting for some hot porn to load
mod6: slowly
mircea_popescu: boolcrap so get a woman.
boolcrap: well
boolcrap: in my country i dont have a stable of women
boolcrap: like u do
mircea_popescu: builds character anyway. you'll get trained against doing i too early.
mircea_popescu: pankkake incidentally, banning romania in a torrent tracker is pretrty much idiotic.
mircea_popescu: i would guess 50% of all material in the eu is in romania.
pankkake: most French internet is 20M down/1M up for 30€ (DSL) - some lucky people have real FTTH though, with symetric bandwith
pankkake: conversely, there are many romanian trackers
mircea_popescu: pankkake obviously you can have anything custom installed. the discussion is more about you know, entry level or average or w/e
pankkake: either it was because some ISPs were altering the traffic (happens in Israel), or there were too many cheaters (romanians, after all)
pankkake: well French FTTH is about 30€ too. just way too few places where it is installed
pankkake: and it seems most of the hurdle is bureaucracy
pankkake: the lines are built
mircea_popescu: of course.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.51941 BTC [-]

pankkake: my coproperty said yes to an ISP… 3 years ago
pankkake: private trackers rely on the clients to tell how much they upload and download
pankkake: but you can totally lie
pankkake: of course, unless everyone lies, you can figure out who did lie
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 3 @ 0.51446666 = 1.5434 BTC [-] {2}
mircea_popescu: but why do you care if they lie or not /
pankkake: each user has upload/download stats
pankkake: and you have to maintain a good ratio of those

pankkake: the goal is to encourage sharing
mircea_popescu: this sounds to me like french bureaucracy
pankkake: haha
mircea_popescu: just let people do whatever the fuck it is they please to do.
pankkake: well, the end result is a lot of content and a lot of speed
mircea_popescu: seeing how there's no comparison point, all soviet bureaucracies claim a lot of speed and content
mircea_popescu: north korea is at this very moment saying the same
punkman1: the goal is usually to get people to pay for download credits, since they can't actually upload anything
mircea_popescu: derp.
punkman1: because too many people uploading
pankkake: the real issue of private trackers is… CENTRALIZATION!!
mircea_popescu: so the goal is to try and recreate riia out of material stolen from the riia
pankkake: the best trackers - as in best content and spee- usually don't do that
mircea_popescu: obviously.
mircea_popescu: and the better ones actually don't block romania, on the grounds of you know, being in romania in the first place.
pankkake: http://i.imgur.com/NmI9aDK.png
mircea_popescu: kinda meaningless to me but hey.
pankkake: I wanted to compare the different reward/"economic" systems but never got to it
punkman1: pankkake: how can that small amount of leechers support those seeders?
mircea_popescu: lol!
pankkake: what do you mean?
punkman1: seeders need leechers to get download credit, not enough leechers for everyone
punkman1: yeah it's a bit twisted this logic
pankkake: the thing is, most of your torrents stay idle, but you then can seed a LOT of things
mircea_popescu: http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/08/wikipedia-kills-page-linking-obama-slogan-to-socialist-movement/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0

davout: kakobrekla: did you document your findings about bitstamps matching engine somewhere?
davout: or should i dig the logs?
kakobrekla: hm, i bitchumented it here and prolly on forums couple of times
kakobrekla: but then they added to their faq "we are retarded" and i stopped.

kakobrekla: btw dunno if you caught it, but they are supposedly selling their shit in a month or so
davout: yeah, you said it here a week ago or sthg iirc
davout: the question is who buys it
punkman1: nobody sane
davout: punkman1: the value of an exchange boils down to the value of their banking relationship + their existing customer base
davout: one of the two is unknown
kakobrekla: anyway re bitstamp, there were couple of problems over the course of time
kakobrekla: the most irritating is the min trade fee
davout: oh yeah i heard about this one
kakobrekla: i had a case where someone hit my order with 1 satoshi
davout: ouch
kakobrekla: (they can also make this shit up)
davout: like hitting your order with a satoshi just to charge you the minn fee?
kakobrekla: yea
kakobrekla: and ofc fee in that case is millions %
davout: yo
Apocalyptic: <kakobrekla> btw dunno if you caught it, but they are supposedly selling their shit in a month or so // interesting
davout: "your cable was unplugged and it took 3 secs to fix? we'll charge you the full hour no problem"

davout: kakobrekla: i'm asking because imma open up the market orders feature, and i want to test the shit out of it before i do, so i was wondering if there were some bugs with them that could give me additional things to pay attention to
davout: (on bstamp)
Apocalyptic: davout, have you read http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1r4d6t/bitstamps_streaming_api_and_exploitation/ ?
Apocalyptic: the issue, and the fact someone is exploiting it beyond reasonable doubt has been verified
davout: Apocalyptic: has it been fixed ?
Apocalyptic: nope
Apocalyptic: not to my knowledge
ThickAsThieves: why isnt mpex quoting options?
ThickAsThieves: data source seems to be working fine, no? http://api.bitcoincharts.com/v1/weighted_prices.json
davout: ThickAsThieves: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=14-02-2014#503754 ☝︎
ThickAsThieves: failed to get a quote?
davout: yea, that's kind of mysterious
ThickAsThieves: as in cant access the bitcoincharts data that is accessible?
davout: maybe it's some sort of safe switch that interrupts quoting under certain market conditions
davout: maybe the quoting leprechauns are on strike
ThickAsThieves: thatd be fine i guess
ThickAsThieves: if that was stated reasoning
davout: or mebbe the leprechaun is busy http://th06.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2011/165/e/e/fvsm01_leprechauns1_witches0_by_faile35-d3ixz8r.jpg

ThickAsThieves: "dont expect to buy options when you want them most" or such
ThickAsThieves: hypothetically speaking of course
davout: if it "failed" to get a quote it sort of implies it's an unexpected situation
ThickAsThieves: which'd be weird too, considering that's just an algo flaw, just make em cost more
ThickAsThieves: i vote it's a Bugpowder freezeout
